(sing along) "Ev'ry thing old i-s ne-ew a-gain!"














Old water works.

Crusty, dusty, old and rusty,
Not a happy state.
Fusty, musty not so trusty,
Past its use-by-date.

Built to last in ages past,
From iron, zinc and tin,
Now displaced by PVC
And polyethelene.

(But) if recycling's to your liking,
Send it round again,
It comes back, a Cadillac,
Made in two-o-ten.

  12. Two for the price of one is good - or as as we say here BOGOF! No reflection on your talent - it means "Buy one, get one free!" LOL

  14. does this mean politicians will be recycled?
    Ashes to ashes
    Dust to dust
    When they come back
    They'll be someone to trust?

  15. damn, I'll bet you even have a twinkle of blue in those eyes, lol. However, my eye is on the Caddy, not because it's a Caddy, but because it is a car, that even looks like it could handle an extended road trip, unlike my current mess that starts wimpering whenever we come in sight of the city limits.
